The Covid-19 public health crisis continues to reverberate across many aspects of our lives, particularly in the workplace. Employers have sought ways to improve access to mental health and telehealth providers, not just because working remotely has led to this need. Employees also have higher expectations for health benefits like these and if their employers can’t deliver them, they may look elsewhere for employment.
Employee benefits, trends in this sector, and how employers think about them will dominate the conversation at the MedCity INVEST Digital Health conference in Dallas, September 28. Hosted in collaboration with Health Wildcatters, the conference will feature a startup pitch contest —Pitch Perfect. The application deadline is July 15.

- Your company has raised at least $1 million or a Series A round, or has a qualified institutional investor or a strategic investor.
- If you pitched at a MedCity event in 2021 or 2022 you are not eligible for this contest.
